To start to take on the far right and tackle climate change from within Europe, the party must first take a side
• Laura Parker is Momentum’s national coordinator

Jeremy Corbyn’s 2015 leadership campaign motivated thousands. Enthused by an unequivocal, principled call to build a fairer Britain and a more peaceful world, I was one of hundreds who joined volunteer phone-banking sessions. In Labour’s 2017 general election team, I played a small part in the by then huge movement which inspired millions to vote for the party and which has since inspired socialist parties across Europe and beyond.

Making a decisive break with lowest common denominator politics, calling out austerity as a political choice and not a necessity, our reinvigorated party has forced cracks into the consensus supporting neoliberal economics worldwide. It has helped to restore the fight for social justice to the heart of left politics. #Labour #GretaThunberg #Environment #Brexit #Thefarright #Worldnews #Politics #Article50 #UKnews #EuropeanUnion

On Putin's attempt to ease access to Russian citizenship for Ukrainians

Putin did not mention his own government’s culpability in creating the deadly conflict in eastern Ukraine, which has resulted in the human rights problems to which he referred.The territories the Russian president referred to have not been under Ukrainian government control since the spring of 2014, when Russia used military force to establish the so-called “republics” in Donetsk and Luhansk. Polygraph.info has documented how Russia initiated the war in 2014 and, according to international authorities, continues to exercise control over part of Ukraine’s Donbas.

However, Putin could not reasonably claim pensions as a reason for his action on Russian passports, because Russia’s Pension Fund later announced that recipients of these passports would not be eligible to collect any pensions unless they permanently relocated to Russia.

The most commonly-cited example involved the two breakaway Georgian territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In 2008, then-President Dmitry Medvedev partly used defense of Russian citizens to justify going to war with Georgia. Thus, there is a fear that Putin will use “passportization” in Donbas as a pretext for open military intervention there and possibly in other parts of Ukraine.

Thousands take to Hong Kong streets to protest new extradition laws - Reuters

Tens of thousands of people marched on Hong Kong’s parliament on Sunday to demand the scrapping of proposed extradition rules that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial - a move which some fear puts the city’s core freedoms at risk.

San Diego synagogue attack causes one murder and three people injured

Goldstein said he was preparing for his sermon on Saturday, the last day of Passover and one of the holiest days of the year, when he walked into the lobby and saw Lori Gilbert Kaye. Kaye was coming to the service to say a prayer for her mother, who recently died, Goldstein said at a press conference on Sunday.

His voice breaking, Goldstein said, "I ran to gather them together. My granddaughter, four-and-a-half years old, sees her grandpa with a bleeding hand and she sees me screaming and shouting 'Get out! Get out!' She didn't deserve to see her grandfather like this."

"After the shooter left — this terrorist left — I turned around to assess the situation," the rabbi said. "I walk into the lobby and I see Lori lying the floor unconscious."

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D - NYC) warns AG Bill Barr not to try to control him

Barr is scheduled to testify to the Judiciary Committee on Thursday about special counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report on the investigation, a redacted version of which was released earlier this month. He is also expected to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
Nadler wants to allow each committee member a five-minute round of questioning. A key point of contention has arisen over Nadler’s wanting to allow for another round of questioning of 30 minutes for each party’s committee counsels. The chairman also proposed that the panel go into closed session to discuss the redacted sections of the report.

“It is not up to Attorney General Barr to tell our committee how to operate, and will I be puzzled if he actually decides not to show,” Dean said Sunday on “CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield.”

Republicans still hot for AOC (D - NYC)

"On Easter I was away from tech visiting my grandmother in Puerto Rico, which continues to suffer from the White House’s incompetent disaster response," Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter after Conway called out the congresswoman's "silence" on the attacks.

"I see officials who get a lot of airtime and ink like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, congresswoman, who tweets many times about the mosque and never once about the Christians being killed in Sri Lanka," Conway said during a conversation with CNN's Jake Tapper about President Drumpf's response to the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.
Both sides are wrong: We now have to mourn the synagogue shooting last Sabbath. You both have to be hypocrites, shame on you!!1!!!!!!!!!11!
Ocasio-Cortez said in a separate tweet that "the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka was horrifying." She also said that "saying 'Easter worshippers' matters bc Easter is the holiest day of the year for Christians, & to be targeted on Easter highlights how heinous the attack was."
We should all distance ourselves from hollow words that seem to matter so much for Ms. Conway, and instead demand stronger actions to prevent such some terrorist attacks. Words don't matter when they are not accompanied by likewise actions. And again, I ask you: What about the most recent mosque shooting, and the attacker's inspiration, which includes Pittsburgh and Christchurch, yet not Sri Lanka?

Opinium finds more than half of voters say it would have been better not to have held vote

More than half the public (55%) now think it would have been better never to have held the EU referendum given the difficulties of reaching an agreement on Brexit, according to the latest Opinium/Observer poll.

Strikingly, more Conservative voters (49%) now think the referendum was a bad idea than believe it was the right thing to have done (43%). #Brexit #EuropeanUnion #Europe #Politics #UKnews
 

Two articles on Pete Buttigieg

1. CNBC:

“Mayor Pete will not be influenced by special-interest money, and we understand that making this promise is an important part of that commitment,” campaign manager Mike Schmuhl wrote in an email to supporters.
Good man, although I wished he did this move on his own, and didn't require the peering pressure of his progressive base. This should be an obvious choice you fell right away, not only months after running for president.
Buttigieg’s campaign has quickly gained steam, ascending from essentially zero name recognition to the top levels of the crowded Democratic field in a matter of weeks.
Well, name recognition is difficult when so many people wonder how your name is pronounced correctly. :D

2. The Daily Beast:

“Gwyneth Paltrow has built a successful brand by spreading health misinformation and embracing pseudoscience,” Timothy Caulfield, chair of health law and policy at the University of Alberta and author of Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?, told The Daily Beast. “Facts obviously don’t mean much to her. The last thing we need is another politician who tolerates this kind of approach. We need leaders who will champion science, evidence, and critical thinking!”
He should distance himself from her immediately, or otherwise, he will lose a lot of his good reputation. He doesn't need this kind of fame, this kind of attention. No-one needs this if he or she wishes to be recognised as serious. If not, then... Well, you will fall out of many people's focus.
Caulfield, however, said that by accepting checks and backing from Paltrow, Buttigieg has propped Goop and its quacky wellness claims on a pedestal, lending them legitimacy.

Russiagate.How CN Covered the ‘Scandal’: No. 7: ‘Russiagate Is No Watergate or Iran-Contra’....
Russia-gate,the sprawling investigation into whether Russia meddled in last year’s U.S. election,is often compared to the two big political scandals of the latter half of the Twentieth Century,Watergate and Iran-Contra.Sometimes you even hear that Russia-gate is “bigger than Watergate.”
The bugged phone from the Watergate office of Democratic Party official Spencer Oliver.Placed on the phone during a May 1972 break-in,the bug was the only device that worked.A second break-in on June 17. 1972, led to the capture of Richard Nixon’s Watergate burglars.
Yet what is perhaps most remarkable about those two Twentieth Century scandals is how little Official Washington really understands them,and how these earlier scandals significantly contrast,rather than compare, with what is unfolding now.
Although the historical record is still incomplete on Watergate and Iran-Contra,the available evidence indicates that both scandals originated in schemes by Republicans to draw foreign leaders into plots to undermine sitting Democratic presidents and thus pave the way for the elections of Richard Nixon in 1968 and Ronald Reagan in 1980.
As for Russia-gate,even if you accept that the Russian government hacked into Democratic emails and publicized them via WikiLeaks,there is still no evidence that Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Kremlin to do so.
